Event Update

We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.

We are aware that there will be many of you who will be feeling incredibly disappointed about our decision; we would very much like to be able to welcome you all to the event, but we cannot proceed if we feel unable to ensure the safety of everyone onsite.

We felt that it may help to understand how we have reached our decision and what happens next.

Our Reasons:

  • Unlike other events, who are based in specialist event spaces, we are a business premises with private residences and other businesses sharing the same site. We must consider not only the risks to ticket holders, traders, and our staff, but, also to the wider community with whom we share the site.
  • We work closely with our charity partner Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice whose staff and volunteers comprise some of our event staff and it would be irresponsible to put any of their team at risk.
  • We have a responsibility to all attendees to ensure that we maintain their safety – should the event have gone ahead we had been advised to ask attendees to provide proof of vaccination status and being double jabbed – which would have been incredibly difficult to manage logistically with staff available.
  • Our insurers were very unhappy about the event going ahead.

All these combined have contributed to a general unease about how sensible it was to continue. It’s because of the combination of these factors that has seen us come to the conclusion that we feel we have no choice but to cancel this year, and come back bigger and better next year in our normal June slot.

We are aware that other events are going ahead and that you may feel we should be too, but we can only reiterate that we have to consider the safety of everyone who would be occupying the site over that weekend, our attendees (camping and trade) and the staff at JK and Phyllis Tuckwell. The safety of all is our upmost concern. We hope that, although you may also feel our disappointment at being unable to hold our event and share the weekend with you - that you understand our reasons. 

 

What happens next:

Camping Ticket Holders: All camping tickets will roll over to next year’s dates (Friday 3rd – Sunday 5thJune 2022). This will be automatic, and you will not need to take any action. Should you have any enquiries you can direct them to [email protected]

Trade: Traders will be contacted individually. Should you have any enquiries in the meantime please contact [email protected]

We will respond to any enquiries as quickly as we are able. Thank you for your patience.

Our event dates for 2022 will be back in our normal slot in June (3rd-5th). We’ll be pulling out all the stops to ensure we bring you the biggest and best JK Weekender yet. We’ll see you then…
